Grassroots Advocacy

The VFW Action Corps is the VFW’s national grassroots advocacy network comprised of more than 25,000 VFW members and patriotic supporters of veterans. Members of the VFW Action Corps stay up-to-date on the issues facing our veterans, our military and their families, standing ready to email, write, call and visit our nation’s lawmakers to make their voices heard.

The VFW Action Corps is free and open to all patriotic Americans who care about the military and veterans’ communities.

VFW Action Corps members receive:

  • The VFW Action Corps Weekly, an easy-to-read electronic newsletter that highlights the VFW’s advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill.
  • Immediate access to a nationwide database of contact information for all elected officials, a congressional directory.
  • Regular VFW “Action Alerts” telling them how they can get involved when our nation’s veterans, service members, and their families need their voices heard on Capitol Hill.

The VFW Action Corps is what gives the VFW its strength in advocating for our nation’s heroes. Working hand-in-hand with the VFW’s National Legislative Service — whose office is in eye-shot of the Capitol dome in Washington — members of the VFW Action Corps are armed with all of the tools and information they need to help the VFW in its mission to support our nation’s veterans. So join the VFW Action Corps today and add your voice to the thousands of veterans’ advocates making a difference every day, and if you’re already a member of the VFW Action Corps, encourage your ds and neighbors to join the effort!
